Tasting Notes:
This single vineyard wine was produced using fruit from the Wynwood vineyard in Pokolbin. This low yielding chardonnay vineyard of 2.2 hectares produced 3.5 tonnes of fruit.
 
This wine was made using the traditional clarification techniques of free run juice cold settling and racking followed by ferment inoculation with a neutral strain of yeast.
 
The wine received partial barrel fermentation and maturation in French oak hogsheads, 30% of which were new, the remainder one and two year old. The wine received extended lees contact with periodic lees stirring during the six months of oak maturation.
 
The wine displays peach and pear primary flavours with a balanced toastiness from the French oak. The restriction of malolactic fermentation has given the wine a crisp acid mouth feel, accentuating the varietal fruit flavours and the secondary flavours derived from the oak and lees contact.
 
With suitable cellaring the wine will continue to develop and drink well for at least 5 years.
